(or in this case the sign language signs as well)
There's a dinosaur
Knocking on my Door
Knock Knock Knocking One Two Three
There's a Dinosaur Knocking on my Door
and He wants to spend Shabbat with me
He wants to light the candles
He wants to drink the wine
He wants to eat the challah 
He does it all the time
There's a dinosaur knocking on my door
Repeat lines 3, 4, and 5

This little Shabbas Light I'm gonna let it shine (3x)
Let it Shine (3x)
Don't let anyone Phhft it out I'm gonna let it shine (3s)
Let it Shine (3x)

There are people who have plenty
And there's people who have none
So give your time or give a penny
Lend a hand to help someone
Tikkun Olam, It is our way. To make a difference every day  (2x)
